  • About Us

    The focus on students’ academic excellence, employees’ success, and a supportive community is what sets us apart from other school districts. In November 2018, the community generously supported the passage of a bond and a mill initiative that will provide critical resources to support our building infrastructure and growth, safety and security, technology, curriculum needs and a commitment to attracting and retaining best-in-class employees.

    Our commitment to equity is the foundation of our work and promotes an inclusive culture where students and staff can feel comfortable and thrive.
